    Need some help with listening comprehension again

    I think old timers know what kind of help of need

    There is a number of mp3 files found at http://translations.nm.ru/files .
    Some of them have very long names which are actually transcripts of their content with blancs (____) indicating the problem spots. If a file has a short name, this means that unfortunatly, there is more than 2 words or in it there that I can't quite make out or am not sure about.

    I will try and keep the list current, removing the files that I have either been helped with or figured out on my own after listening to them for umpteenth time .

    Obviously, I don't expect anyone to listen to all of them at once, but any little help is appreciated, and if you feel like checking one or two of them, please do .

    ... the final swan song.

    the groom after the ceremonial poking of the perpetrator in the rear with a fork blocks the attempt.. (???)
    (а вообще хорошо бы контекстик, а то всякие страшные вещи могут послышаться )

    Спасибо! Теперь, после твоей подсказки, это настолько очевидно, что даже...
    А конекстик к каждому отдельному файлу давать -- слишком много работы

    flips over and clobbers the cameraman.

    I am not sure if there is a word between "and" and "clobbers", or whether it is just noise from whatever is flipping over and clobbering the cameraman

    Still figuring out the other one... can you put the non-slowed-down version too?

    This is fun!!

    Eh... the slowed down one got there accidentally, I have replaced it now. By the way, that particular part of the show deals with camel races, this is probably a coined word derived from "camel"

    Hard without context, maybe something like:

    That's the media/mega/omega bar

    "So you think you have seen everything. How about a camel race? Despite their huge humps and awkward appearance camels can be surprisingly fast. But, unlike horses, they are extremely cranky and rarely miss a chance to go after their riders, as you can see here, during this race in Uzbekistan. And here again. [PAUSE] That’s ___"

    Enough context for you?
